The People's Republic of Gri Cous Frodion is a massive, genial nation, notable for its state-planned economy, prohibition of alcohol, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.167 billion Extinct Grecian Birds are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Medium Planet. The average income tax rate is 80.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Extinct economy, worth 54.3 trillion alinkas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Tourism industry. Average income is 46,531 alinkas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A common response to government PSAs is "well, DUH, obviously", discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals, and Leader has just been declared ruler of Gri Cous Frodion in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gri Cous Frodion's national animal is the Coati Mundi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gri Cous Frodion is ranked 13,763rd in the world and 279th in Balder for Most Income Equality, scoring 87 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
